Seth Morgan, MD, is a board-certified clinical neurologist and Fellow of the American Academy of Neurology. After over 20 years of clinical practice, which included taking care of hundreds of individuals with multiple sclerosis, he was diagnosed with MS in 2004. As a college student and then as a medical student, Morgan undertook basic science and clinical research resulting in publications. As a practicing physician, he participated in Institutional Review Boards at the hospitals. He was involved both as a member of the IRB committee and as President of the Medical-Dental Staff (Providence Hospital, Washington, DC). After leaving medical practice in 2006 due to disability, Morgan turned his attention toward advocacy work. Morgan currently serves as a National MS Society District Activist Leader. In that role, his goal is to engage personally with his legislators and help put a name and face to the disease. Morgan was recently inducted into the society’s Hall of Fame for his advocacy work. He has been a member of the National MS Society’s Maryland Governmental Relations Committee for the last two years. Morgan has also served as a citizen reviewer for the MS research proposals submitted to the Congressionally Directed Research Program and was a test subject for Gilenya during its development, having subsequently testified in support of the drug’s approval at FDA meetings. Morgan has expanded his advocacy efforts to work for people with all types of disabilities as a member of Montgomery County Maryland’s Commission on People with Disabilities for the last six years and having served as Chair of that group for the last year. Morgan is a tireless advocate for people with MS.
